Grammar Demons, Take That (Part 3)

Courtesy: Grammer.net

Continuing with my “Grammar Demons” series, today we have Quotation Marks. Another awesome infographic from grammer.net to shed light on some common mistakes.

I have often, particularly when working on my first drafts, misplace my quotations. Over the years things have definitely improved, and most of these rules are ingrained in me–but it only came with practice. It is funny how while reading we gloss over punctuation, and when writing we assume that all will fall into place even without trying. Well at least I did when I started writing. But I realized quickly that the magic I was expecting only happened when I kept paying attention.

Have to keep remembering that old adage, “Dreams don’t work unless you do”. There–I placed the period after I ended the quote, even though my subconscious was urging me to do otherwise. Win!

As always, if you have a favorite inforgraphic or tips to share, please feel free to comment.
